Shark Tank Approved

 

Ann GMA Board

Producer Taylor Dunn invited me to ABC studios  to give a short one-minute pitch about my technology consulting business to Barbara Corcoran and Robert Herjavec from Shark Tank. This was part of a Good Morning America segment about communicating the value of what you do– ostensibly to get a raise.  I was delighted to get an enthusiastic two thumbs up from the sharks and (a third thumb up) from tech correspondent Rebecca Jarvis (of the No Limits podcast).

Better yet, during the time on set between multiple takes I learned from Barbara that she has a 3D printer in her office and has no idea what to do with it.  “I’ve got you- Tell me one important problem about high-end real estate and I’ll show you how to use your printer to help solve it.  This is what I do. It’ll be fun!”

3D Print Management for Success

You just got a 3D printer!

3D printers (rapid prototyping systems) are an amazing tool for your maker-space, school, non-profit or atelier.  But after you get a single machine, or a suite, who is going to manage it?  How will you make sure that it gets used in a meaningful way? How can you be certain you’re really getting your money’s worth?

I’m here to help you.  When I’m not working at Ramapo College as a professor of 3D Design and Animation, or in the studio with my own research, I do consulting for institutions that want to understand how to best apply 3D printing to their existing workflow while minimizing waste and frustration.

On Art and Engineering

In addition to my regular duties as Associate Professor of Animation and 3D Design at Ramapo College of New Jersey, I’ve started to reach out to educators and artists in different ways. I believe strongly in the concept of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math). Artists have always been innovators and inventors.
